MOSCOW, March 30 (Itar-Tass) — By the middle of 2013, the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) should complete the work aimed at the separation of the posts of the director generals and chief designers of the space industry enterprises, Federal Space Agency head Vladimir Popovkin told journalists.
“During the 2012 – first half of 2013, we will close this issue,” he said.
Recalling that this decision was made by the Russian Space Agency collegium, Popovkin pledged that Roskosmos does not plan to speed up the process. The activities for the separation of the posts, in his opinion, are dictated by the realities of life: there are many companies in the industry where there are very good chief designers, but they cannot cope with the duties of directors (such as the Kaliningrad-based Fakel company, for example).
“There are companies where these positions are already separated, for example, the Samara-based TsSKB-Progress or the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology (MIT),” the head of the Federal Space Agency recalled. However, there is no such need in the Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems, because the head of the company copes with dual responsibilities.
The personnel reform will be conducted in stages, Popovkin said. At state-owned enterprises (FSUE) decisions will be made by order, and in joint stock companies the issue will be discussed at meetings of the board of directors or general meetings of shareholders.
